Master students can apply for this seminar directly in the office hours of Prof. Rosenberg on September 8, 3-5 PM (probably via Zoom only). Please make an appointment at the beginning of September with Michaela Golubits (michaela.golubits@univie.ac.at).

Information

Aims, contents and method of the course

Visual art cannot do without the eye, just as music cannot do without the ear. Eye movements were a major topic of art literature for centuries, however, it is only recently that art history started implementing eye tracking and thus also empirical methods. The University of Vienna with its Lab for Cognitive Research in Art History is a leader in this field.
The seminar aims to introduce students of art history to eye tracking, including how to plan, design, analyze and publish empirical studies. The seminar will focus on theoretical aspects of the method while the practical elements will be covered in the mandatory exercise course. All participants will conduct their own study with the eye tracker in groups of two. Practicing teamwork is, therefore, also one of the goals of the seminar.

Assessment and permitted materials

This seminar is highly time-consuming. The exercise on empirical research practice by Zoya Dare (Tuesday 1-3 PM) is a mandatory part of the seminar.
Performance assessment will be based on the studies conducted in groups of two (always same grade for both students). It will include short oral presentations and a written paper. By registering for the course, you agree that the automated plagiarism software Turnitin will check your written submissions in Moodle.

- Attendance (due to illness, absence from up to 1 session is possible upon presentation of written proof).
